Ted Leo is back and bringing his trusty crew, the Pharmacists, with him to Union Transfer tonight. This past week, Leo smashed his seven year hiatus with the new record, The Hanging Tree, which was funded through the generosity of his fans via a successful Kickstarter campaign. Watch his latest video for “Can’t Go Back,” below, then find info on tonight’s show here.

It’s been nineteen years since Ms. Lauryn Hill released her classic The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. But tonight, the legend will be spinning her poetic verses with saccharine soul at BB&T Pavilion. Listen to a stripped performance of “Water” for a throwback set of MTV’s Unplugged below; then, find info on tonight’s show at the XPN Concert Calendar.

Brit indie pop rockers, Bastille, came into mainstream consciousness with their mega-hit, “Pompeii.” Since then, the four-piece have released their 2016 retro-fused album, Wild World, and somewhere in between, created this brilliant mashup cover of Eminem, Miley Cyrus, and Billy Ray Cyrus. Listen to that masterpiece below, then check them out at The Fillmore tonight, with info available here.
